The OH-HE is a unique light machine gun (LMG) with solid damage and rate of fire, as well as large ammo capacity. Like other Prestige weapons, it also features maximum armor penetration. Though the weapon is unable to equip scopes, grips, and muzzle attachments.
The unique mechanic of the OR-HE grants the player an increase and damage and rate of fire while aiming at the expense of mobility; while aiming, the weapon also activates a unique frontal "energy shield".
Overall, the OR-HE tends to be less popular in multiplayer than LMGs such as the QKR-89, Shred-4 or Hauzzer 45; its slow mobility while aiming makes it best suited to defensive gameplay, as it can easily be outmaneuvered in close-range engagements. Nevertheless, the OR-HE is a potent weapon at all ranges with a solid time-to-kill, capable of matching assault rifles if the player learns to fire accurately. Firing in short bursts while aiming is recommended for maximum accuracy and recoil control at mid-long ranges.
